Mario Acevedo
Author – Felix Gomez Vampire Detective Series

Mario Acevedo is the author of the Felix Gomez vampire-detective series from Eos HarperCollins. In his latest adventure, detective-vampire Felix Gomez is trapped between rival werewolf clans in Charleston, SC in a rumble that could doom the supernatural world.

After Mario bought his first computer, he decided to write a novel. Four computers and with six unpublished manuscripts later, he finally wrote a story good enough to get the interest of an agent and a publisher.

In the Army he flew attack helicopters. In civilian life he worked as an engineer. Later, flexing his art muscles, he became an artist in residence for Arte Americas in Fresno, California. He was called up during Operation Desert Storm and served as a combat artist. After many publisher rejections, Mario finally got some much needed advice about his writing and then got two books published. He is now prepared to share those nuggets of advice and help you get your work published too.

His previous books include: Jailbait Zomby, The Undead Kama Sutra, The Nymphos of Rock Flats and X-Rated Blood Suckers.
